Description

Detection and characterization of steam-turbine rotor flaws are of prime concern in decisions affecting life extension. Rotors represent large capital investments where life extension can provide significant returns, especially if a forced outage or catastrophic failure is avoided. Nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of flaws has proven to be a valuable tool in extending the life of rotors.
